Our Girl Scout Silver Award Take Action project was a lot of fun, especially when we got to drop off the result and see how grateful they were. It took a long time to complete, but it was worth it. Alyssa and I, Mia, decided to build a feral cat shelter for the Pikes Peak Humane Society with the help of Mr. Sonnenberg, our builder. We were able to create an everlasting change in our community as planned by helping feral cats in need of shelter from the harsh weather in Colorado. Both of us learned that doing projects like this weren’t as easy as they looked. We had to do a lot of coordination and planning to complete this project all in the span of a couple of days. Yet, it really did teach us that directing someone was harder than expected! A lot of times, we had to help with positioning something correctly or holding a board in place to be drilled. Overall, though, it was worth the effort to finally finish it all. Alyssa and I are excited to see what’s in it for us when we get around to our Gold Award.
